A former Whitnall High School student accused of coercing teen girls into sending him sexually explicit photos of themselves is expected to plead guilty to some of the 10 felonies filed against him, Assistant District Attorney Matthew Torbenson said Tuesday.
The 14-year-old Milwaukee boy appeared in Children's Court Tuesday and indicated he would enter the guilty pleas at a hearing Dec. 7, Torbenson said.
Torbenson said he expects at that hearing to make a recommendation on punishment and that it is possible the boy could be sentenced at the hearing.
The punishment would range from probation to incarceration at a juvenile correctional facility, he said. Incarcerations typically are for one year, although they can be extended.
The charges include attempted sexual exploitation of a child, possession of child pornography and making threats. The boy allegedly threatened to spread rumors about some of the girls if they did not send him nude or semi-nude photos through their phones or home computers.
The boy also is charged with second-degree sexual assault of a child for alleged sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl.
The boy was a freshman before being expelled last month by the school board after the allegations surfaced.
